Re: Feature Request: Process Hot/Cold Pixels in Live Stacking

I'm new at this, but doesn't using dark frames do that?

Re: Live stacking without alignment?

If you are guiding it should be no problem.
If you are not guiding, use the polar alignment utility and spend some time getting a good PA. That should be good enough for most work.

Re: ASIAir Pro - potential to revolutionize EAA!!!!

I have used the ASI294 MC pro with both ASIAir version 1, and now the pro for EAA with great success. Combined with Sky Safari, hopping around the sky is fun and easy. I commonly image 10 - 15 DSO's a night. If I find one I want to really focus on I will shoot some cal frames and stack. The only rea...

dither settings

My first night out with the Pro Yielded great results. Live Stacking & cal frames worked well, but I wasn't dithering. I understand the concept, but don't really know where to start with the settings. Any suggestions for a good starting place would be appreciated. CEM60 294 MC Pro C8 @ f10 & f6.3 ZW...

Re: ASIair Pro, Live, Lines on Flats - Solved

It was strobing caused by the flicker rate of the LED from the flat panel, and the frame rate of the camera.
That part is solved.

As far as the gain, does it have something to do with the 294's NR?

ASIair Pro, Live, Lines on Flats

When I capture flat frames, combinations of illumination level and exposure that result in proper a proper histogram, also result in horizontal lines across the frame. I rotated the source and the lines don't move. Generally exposures that yield a histogram over 2/3 show no visible lines. Many sourc...

Re: ASIAIR Facebook user group: poll

Since I can't respond to your poll on FB,
Put me down for iOptron CEM60
and occasionally Skywatcher AZ-EQ5
I will be using the pro on the iOptron when it arrives, and keeping the original for my Skywatcher

It looks like facebook has locked out non-members.
I don't like fb
I not going to join fb
Why do you allow a third party to control your technical forums, esp when you already have one right here?

plate solve FOV

Will V 1.4 change the minimum FOV for plate solving in my old Air, or is that the Pro only?

Answered my own question the other night.
Using original asiair with 1.4 would not plate solve on my C8 @ f10. Still worked fine @ f2.

So... I'm waiting on my pro
